Detox – Diet For A Day Each Week
Whether we are extremely busy, sit on the couch a lot, or absolutely anywhere in between, we can benefit from a simple, fairly effortless weekly health detox by doing a healthy diet for a day every week. Our bodies need vitamins, minerals and nutrients that most of us really need much more of. Many of us eat foods that do more damage to our bodies than they do good. Give your body a boost by doing a healthy diet for a day each week. Your body will start to feel much better and your normal eating habits may even change to become healthier without you even noticing as your body begins to crave the more healthy food. It’s generally our eating habits and cravings that cause us to feel unhealthy, tired and be over weight. Making a start with a diet for a day every week may open the door to a new, more healthy lifestyle and a new, more healthy you.
So, what should you include in your diet for a day? In short…healthy stuff. Raw, natural, unprocessed foods are best. The more different types of healthy foods you eat, the more benefit you and your body will get.
Raw nuts and seeds are great. They contain many good things and they can very be filling. Make sure to eat them raw because eating salted, roasted, honey roasted and spiced nuts, etc defeats the purpose of eating raw nuts and seeds. You can buy raw nuts and seeds at bulk food stores, healthfood stores and supermarkets everywhere. Walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds all contain dietary goodness that your body will love.
Raw, plain fresh fruit is also great snack. Although bananas contains plenty of calories, they will provide you with the energy you need when you need it. One banana on your weekly diet day is plenty. Other mainstream fruits you should eat are apples, grapes, oranges, plums and nectarines. Lemons are good for you too, you should squeeze half of a lemon into a glass of water, adding ice makes it nice and cool. Dried fruit can contain loads of sugar so avoid eating it and choose fresh fruit instead.
Don’t give up eating for a day! The reason for doing a diet for a day each week isn’t to starve yourself. The purpose of the weekly diet day is to eat healthy food for a day each week and to cut out bad fat, salt, sugars, preservatives, oils, and bleaches (used in white rice and flour) to give your body a much needed break. One day a week certainly isn’t too much for your body to ask for, is it?
